What is Petroleum Coke?
Petroleum coke is a byproduct of the oil refining process. It refers to all types of carbonaceous solids obtained in petroleum processing, which includes green or raw, calcined and needle petroleum coke. This mineral is used in many applications, including an electric power plant, cement kilns, electrodes and anodes. It is also used as a fuel in the metal and brick industries. Fuel grade petroleum coke is typically very high in heating value (BTUs per pound), and it produces no ash when burned.
There are at least 4 types of petroleum coke, namely, needle coke, sponge coke, honeycomb coke and shot coke. The four types of petroleum coke have different microstructures due to differences in operating variables and the nature of feedstock.
